The 9th Change Agents’ Network (CAN) conference will take place on 11th-13th May 2022. The in-person day will be hosted on the UCL London Bloomsbury campus.

Wednesday 11th May: Reviewing the student-staff partnership landscape (half day online),

Thursday 12th May: Reconnecting the student-staff partnership community (full day in-person) and,

Friday 13th May: New horizons for student-staff partnerships (half day online).

This annual conference, co-hosted by UCL and Jisc, will return as a blended event, with online and face-to-face elements. The design of this year’s conference will maximise the benefits of face-to-face methods using high engagement and participation activities such as workshops and open space dialogue to discuss and reflect on the student-staff partnership community. Attendees will be able to engage with asynchronous resources ahead of the in-person day, and use them as a starting point for real-time activities at the in-person day.

The sub-themes invite participants to reflect and explore ways in which they work in partnership. Through a diverse range of formats, we ask for submissions around the following themes:


  • Partnerships to transform and support change
  • Co-creating the curriculum and assessment
  • Inclusive partnerships
  • (Rebuilding) learning communities
  • Quality Assurance and governance

CAN2022 seeks the following formats to interpret the overarching theme ‘Sustaining Partnerships in Transformative Times’:

  • Pecha Kucha (live online or in-person)
  • 5 minute lightning talk (live online or in-person)
  • 20-30 minute interactive session (live online or in-person)
  • Up to 5 minute pre-recorded video presentation (asynchronous)
  • Short case study (asynchronous)
  • Narrated poster presentation (asynchronous)
  • Workshop (in-person only)
